Knitting with Cat

knitSB and I had a pleasant time knitting with Cat this evening. She completed a Baby Bolero from One Skein that is rather cute. It is a project that KnitMary has knit but I've just not gotten around to doing it myself.

I continue to knit on the lining for the Medusa Hat. I'm almost finished knitting the sides and I'll be doing the top with three points of decreases. This will mirror the top of the hat.

This was the first time I ha picked up the needles in two weeks and it was wonderful to be around great people knitting.

It is almost spring and I am looking forward to getting out into the yard and clear away the fallen twigs and make it easier for things to start growing.

How about you? Are you looking forward to spring?

this picture is a bit out of focus but I like the way it shows Hugo's face. He's grown a lot sine we go him about 6 weeks ago. He's healthy any is enjoying the nice weather because he can go inside and outside without waiting for us to open the door. He's a spunky dog.

knitSB and he worked on the flower beds on Sunday afternoon while I was at the theater. The flower beds look nice. The theater experiene has been great this time around. I've got 4 videos in the can that I need to post. 5 shows down and 10 more to go. Do bring the family to the show. It's a good one.

Alas, I have not knitted for almost 3 weeks. In case you're wondering, that is the is distrubance you've been feeling in the Force. I'm catching up on the knitting this week with a visit to Cat if our schedules match up.

I put them in the pots and waited.
and waited.

About two weeks ago the bulbs started to bloom. I have them in our bathroom. They are beautiful to see when getting out of the shower.

I need spring to come.
